I've been using Windows 10 Pro on two machines for the last month without any great issues. Today I tried to install Windows 10 Enterprise on a third machine, and became stuck, as the only options for signing in are as follows:
- Join a domain
- Use an Azure AD account
- Create a local account
I have a standard Microsoft Account, rather than a Microsoft Organizational Account. I've had it for years, and will have it for years to come as I'm self-employed and don't require an Azure AD server to look after myself.
To get around this, create a local account (e.g. "Dave") for the purposes of completing the installation. Once Windows has installed, use the following procedure to replace the local account with your Microsoft Account:
- Start Menu
- Your account
- Sign in with a Microsoft Account
- Enter your Microsoft Account's username/password
- Verify the device using the PIN number or email process
Now I can continue to use either Win 10 Pro or Enterprise with my Microsoft Account, without having to worry about going back to school, or setting up an AD server.
